megrendel no you don't have to tip, but any tips received really shouldn't be considered anything other than an extra income after being paid a reasonable wage.

"by law the employer must make up the difference." by state law. Many states don't have that.

Have you ever SEEN Ron Jeremy? Hell, being in the same room would traumatize me for life. I couldn't wash often enough or with enough bleach.

daegog "We have no idea how many times men get falsely accused at work.  Could be 1000 could be 10000."  So we have no idea about that, but we have SPECIFIC numbers of how many women never report a rape?  Mmm-hmmm..

No, it's not. it's infinitely more difficult, bloody and hated by those that are only ever shown the civilian casualties by the same terrorists we are trying to stop, because they intentionally put those same civilians in harm's way.

korahn That's one thing many people in other countries don't get, i think. servers in the US get totally screwed on their hourly wage and are expected to perform for tips. 

"The government forcing tip distribution in either way is stupid"
Which is why the move made by the Trump administration is good, the policy before WAS forcing tip distribution. The other thing that always pissed me off is the way tips are taxed. there IS a minimum amount of tips per year that are automatically taxed, whether you get them or not if, you're in a job that pays less than minimum wage + tips. Fun, huh?
squidbush wrote:
megrendel I'd rather they were paid like everyone else and leave tipping as what it was supposed to be in the first place, a GRATUITY, and not paying the rest of the server's wages.
There's absolutely no reason we can't tip anyone that does an exceptional job, but telling us we HAVE to tip our servers or they won't come even close to making a living wage is just a total asshole move. (as is forcing people to work for peanuts and beg for tips)

monkwarrior The Crusades were an attempt to reclaim the holy lands from Islamic rule and were wholly church sanctioned. How could that NOT be attributed to the religious? Are you trying to say atheists infiltrated the Latin Church?
squidbush wrote:
monkwarrior You're going to make me bring up the Crusades and Muslim's ethnic cleansing of India aren't you?

Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire - 1519-1632 - Death toll - 24,300,000

Taiping Rebellion   - 1850-1871 - Death toll - 22,000,000

Mongol Conquests in Eurasia - 1206 - 1368 - Death toll - 34,000,000

That's just a few. No war, genocide or just general act of asshattery that kills THAT many people is just something someone woke up one day and said "Hey lets go kill millions of people for shits and giggles."
and the 20th century is hardly the only time that many people died because of religious or ideological dick measuring contests.
Saying atheism is the reason for the most people killed in history is both incorrect and intellectually deceitful.
